a 350 Watt difference constitutes "not ok"? really?

in a system pulling 500 amps at that.

simple math using your examples and a generic shitty efficiency rating yields this system makes around 4762.5 watts. But hey it could be making 5112.5 and all you have to do is pay twice as much! Think of how high you can turn your nose up to people running CCA :)

the man is teaching you the difference. You need to have your pencil and note pad out. I also think you should show some respect. He hasn't posted any smart ass comments your direction.

Don't remember, it was over two years ago...almost 3 years when I installed it

just curious, you took out perfectly good OFC and replaced it with exact runs of CCA? Why would you do that? color change on the wire jacket? Was the OFC bad?

Are you referring to the video when he said there was a 350 watt loss due to resistance?

That is not amplifier power, that is dc power along the wire he was talking about.

Not in exactly my direction no. More of a blanket statement involving everyone who runs CCA, uses the term "box rise," or uses a class D amp and calls it "better." Here is the thing, I am all for knowing the science and math, but I am also wise enough to know that in practice the gains or losses are minute.

I hate to sit here and watch people hear everything said by him and take it as gospel.

And don't get it wrong, I respect Tony, but I won't have people thinking that there is only one way to do something and that if they aren't doing it that way they are wrong.

what Tony says IS gospel. And i mean that. He forgot more today then you or i have learned in 10 years.

There's always more than one way to do something. Some better than others. Often with any product there are good better and best versions. The man is teaching the ideal way, or best way of doing things. His ways aren't the only way, but why would you show someone how to do something in an inferior way? I feel like I learn something every time I watch one of his videos.

SEE? this is the shit I am talking about. People don't truly understand and just say things. Tell me something where does that 350 watts go? Where is all this power headed? The amp. Remember the .7 volt drop difference? When does that rear its ugly head? In the amp.

and Yeah I did forget to calculate one thing once that difference in voltage goes into the amp there is even more loss. So the 350 watts turns into 466.67 but the point still stands.

Back to what I was saying. If you mean to educate, educate without bias. Else you are just a salesman

Dude, 350 watts of input on an amp does not equal anything you can say here without knowing more about what the power is going too. Hell, we could be talking about a system that has 14.4v and 750 amp potential (10,500 watts) and running a boss 50x2 amp, you think 350 watts lost over a wire is going to make any difference.

interesting you say that because that is the very point I am arguing
